First there was the book by Dan Baum. I'm only halfway done, but it is phenomenal. It really gives a great flavor of NOLA and the people.
Next there's a great CD where and Coleman DeKay composed all of this great music around the book. I've only listened to it a couple of times, because I'd rather read the book first. I see a blog about the project is up.
Now there is a theatre production that debuted for 1 night so far. At first, it was just one show, but the demand was there so they added another one at 10pm and I had an advance ticket.
It was great. I could only stay for the first act, it was just too early in my trip to be sitting, I mean I was even on a plane earlier. It was perfect because it was all about the parts of the book I already read. I didn't want to stay for the 2nd set until I read it. I will have to make sure I get another opportunity.
The show was mainly the musicians and vocalists doing the CD, with some narration and a screen with pictures. I thought it was going to be more like a musical. It was great, and hopefully it will get big and popular and come to Broadway.
